autodock cron plugin

Project Description

Cron-like Plugin for autodock.

This plugin runs containers on a regular scheduled as defined by the environment variable CRON of the form m h d mon dow much like crond on many Linux/UNIX systems.

The container must first be run at least once for autodock-cron to pick up the new container and its configuration.

Note that autodock-cron makes use of the Docker API and effectively calls docker start on your container; a new container is NOT created on very run of the schedule.


See: autodock

Basic Usage

Start the daemon:

$ docker run -d --name autodock prologic/autodock

Link and start an autodock plugin:

$ docker run -d --link autodock prologic/autodock-cron

Run a container of your choice and set CRON=*/1 * * * * to run every minute:

$ docker run --name hello -e CRON="*/1 * * * *" busybox sh -c 'echo Hello'

Now autodock-cron will schedule a timer to re-run this container every minute until the container is deleted and removed. After about ~3mins you should get:

$ docker logs hello
